What’s your score?
If you have scored between 40 to 50 ‘patience’ is your middle name and your feelings are under your control.

If you have scored 15 to 40 your emotions are mostly under your control, but sometimes they do rule you. The higher your score is in this bracket more in control are your emotions.

If you have scored 0 to 15 your emotions rule all the time, which is not good for people around you.
